Hillsborough Memorial Cup

On Friday 28 March our talented Year 8 footballers travelled to the Liverpool Soccer Centre in Walton for the final of the Hillsborough Memorial Cup.

The boys played a strong side from Alsop High and despite the difficult weather conditions won three goals to one.

Team coach Mr Forgie said at the end of the match: "I am delighted we have won this new trophy and I feel we are worthy winners. I am now hopeful that our two other semi-finals in the Merseyside and National Cups can also be successful."

The tournament is the brainchild of Joe Anderson, the Mayor of Liverpool, who was there on the day to present the silverware along with Margaret Aspinall, chair of the Hillsborough Family Support Group and LFC's Jon Flanagan.

The Mayor said he hoped it would raise awareness amongst local young people about the tragedy ahead of the 25th anniversary in April and serve as a living, breathing tribute to all those who died for many years to come.

It is apt that in the first year of winning this award that we remember one of our own former pupils, Gary Jones who attended our school from 1982 to 1987 who sadly died in Hillsborough aged just 18 years old.

Our thoughts and prayers are with Gary's family and all the other families at this poignant time and in particular during the process through the inquest.
